's your thoughts on this? we've seen paul ryan, marco rubio extend a hand to president obama so to speak and suggest they are ready to talk about immigration reform. what's the biggest hurdle here? >> well, i think the biggest hurdle in the end is going to be politics, of course, but the issue of citizenship. what marco rubio outlined this week and last weekend is very close to what president obama talked about in 2011. and so i think that will provide some cover for other republicans. when you've got someone like marco rubio, a rising star in the party, paul ryan, saying we're ready to do a deal here, but the devil is in the details as they always say. democrats feel very emboldened on this issue, and they're going to sort of, you know, swing for the fences. they want full legal status, including citizenship for undocumented immigrants and it's not clear how far republicans will go to do that. >> scott, it is clear that they're listening because senator rubio had before only supported very small steps in the immigration reform debate, a series of small bills. he did not want a big sweep
want to look at marco rubio's proposal, because he would define his proposal as such. let's listen to mr. rubio for a moment. >> i have been tough on this issue, and border security, but it is getting better. the stats show it is getting better, and i think that they have a handle on it now, and i think that your program is fair, and so i want you and president obama to get on the phone and get this thing before it turns into a bloody mess. >> well, that is marco rubio talking, but who we saw speaking there is bill o'reilly, and let's move forward. sop apparently bill o'reilly and myself can sit together and get it done. is there going to be bipartisan support to get this issue through? >> yes. and remember the last time the voices in the tv world and the radio world were far right and you have to kill it. and now folks say, you have to get it done. and the u.s. chamber of commerce is working with labor to make it happen. we are going to make it happen, and marco rubio is talking about things that we have been talking about over 10 years, and the republicans are coming forward to s
on in the senate. this week we saw that senator marco rubio came out with a plan and is getting actually great endorsement from some of the right wing conservatives and pundits and influence makers in our party. and also from the wous. when was the last time you heard, you know, right wing conservative pundits and the white house agree on anything? they agreed that this plan was actually aed goo thing. so it looks like there is some hope on that. it's going to require a very delicate balancing act, by the white house, by democrats, and republicans in congress. >> and very quickly, what do you think it will look like in this second term? >> well, in terms of immigration, i do think that it is a priority for this president. it sounds like the republicans are getting to the point where, and we heard this right after the election, that they understood what they needed to do to attract latinos to the party, when you hear sean hannity talk about, we have to do comprehensive immigration reform, you know they've moved the needle. i think that marco's proposal is very positive. i've talked to a lot of
marco rubio, hispanic from florida. we have african-american senator tim scott, just appointed. 24s pretty good stuff. >> it is. >> the question is if you did so well on the diversity issues at the state level for these gubernatorial and senate races why can't you get it done at the presidential level? >> well, the presidential level is a little different thing that i'm in charge of at the house level, but we had 21 women candidates and incumbents, all of whom the democrats targeted and replaced with men. you know, we have done a pretty good job, but not as good as we can do at recruitment. we lost african-american candidates and incumbents like allen west and mia love out in utah. so we've got our work to do, but we've had some terrific candidates. we've got terrific members now. we need to listen and learn and do a better job of communicating to get at the issues you're talking about, larry, which is what all americans want. it's a better economy. how do you have a president, as you talked about, that has a jobs council that only meets once? >> i know. it's xwroerd. >> come on. >>
on the hill. what we see is a lot of immigration reform and bipartisan, marco rubio introduced his plan endorsed by representative paul ryan in the house. seeing a build between the house and republicans, between the house republican, excuse me, and the senate democrats, on immigration reform. that's a ticket item we could definitely see him pass. >> house republican, senate democrats. here's the deal, amy. when the president started out four years ago, he controlled, democrats had control of both houses. so how much does that change his approach to trying to check off this wish list? it's not that way anymore. >> no, it's not. compromise is the name of the game. he's seeing that republicans want to compromise on certain issues. with gun control, you're hearing certain republicans talk about background checks. a willingness to do that, also some parts of immigration. i don't know if it's going to be some grand, sweeping deal, but, you know, republicans suffering a loss with the hispanic vote want to see that happen. i think if they can find middle ground on these issues he can have a su
? >> you're already seeing a lot of this immigration reform push with senator marco rubio taking the lead on that, but you're seeing paul ryan join up and the chamber of commerce is starting to get onboard with whatever that republican proposal will be. so i think that that can end up being a moment of unity for everyone and it's possible and there's always rancor in washington. >> there's concern about how they talk about these issues and getting to understand certain things they do and say will be interpreted differently especially by spanish-speaking hispanics and those that are willing to vote republican. >> even the decisions to stop using the word rape, you know? you would think that at some point this is something that members alone would have come to the conclusion of. kristin a thank you very much. ed o'keefe, thank you. do wear your glasses on the air next. they'll become part of your new look. >> there you go. >> excellent! >>> from the city of angels to washington, d.c., coming up, the mayor of los angeles will join us to talk about what christina said was the future of immigr
's current fiscal food fight is it realistic anytime soon? republican senator marco rubio think there is a way and said so this past weekend in "the wall street journal." with trial balloons coming from senator rubio and others, how does the mayor feel about the host of federal and state initiatives on immigration? it is not the only topic on the mayor's agenda. he is been discussing gun control, the economy and many other matters. some have taken notice of his travel to latin america, and some are asking whether a position in the obama administration will be part of his future. please join me in the coming to the national press club, the mayor of los angeles, antonio villaraigosa. [applause] >> thank you, thersa for that introduction, and for inviting me here today at the national press club. before i start, i grew up in a home where we are used to serving ourselves, so whenever i am served, i like to think our servers. if we could give them a big hand, please. [applause] i want to think particularly the members of the press club for this opportunity to speak to you all today.
potential for a compromise bill being fashioned in the u.s. senate. marco rubio who -- who's saying some things similar to what democrats are saying on immigration reform. you have people like john mccain who has a history of supporting immigration reform. so you can see some potential for a compromise between the senate and the white house. and then gets passed to the house where the politics are much trickier because it's controlled by republicans. but i think that's an area where, you know, if you had to -- if you were optimistic about one issue that got solved this year on the president's agenda, then immigration would be at the top of the list. not easy, but there's potential for compromise. >> ryan, last chance -- a little something for the viewers, a little sing, gospel? >> no. believe me, you don't want that. >> all right. another day, another time. thank you. nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >>> now that lance armstrong has admitted to cheating, a lot of people want their money back. if they're successful, guess what, he might be left with nothing. overmany discounts to thin
in time. host: here is a snapshot of politifact's website. we see senator marco rubio being examined. also, phil gingrey in georgia. saul, from new york, on the independent line. caller: since 2008, when john mccain was running for president, republicans have been claiming that if they raise the capital gains taxes, which obama wanted to do, and dividends taxes 15%, that is going to hurt people and retirement plans. they have been scary people that way. elderly people right -- they have been scaring people that way. elie people right now, on their 401 k, everybody knows that when you take money out of the retirement plan, you pay ordinary income taxes. you don't get the 15% tax break that rich people get when they have been outside the retirement plan. nobody has been saying anything about it. no news media, no politicians, no democrats. i would like to hear what he says about that. guest: sure, saul. we have done a lot of fact checks on claims about taxes, and i would interview to go to our website, politifact.com, and then under truth-o-meter -- if it is a factual claim, we will check it
